27 July 2018

Friday 27th July 2018 the Friday evening walk headed to Upperchurch to complete the Eamon an Chnoic Loop. Weather conditions were not favorable for the 11 walkers but very welcome for the landscape. The rain didn’t dampen the spirits of the walkers as the chat and banter flowed but it restricted the views as the group made their way around the loop. Returning to the Village and cars changing the clothes was interesting in the damp conditions. A warm welcome and fire greeted the entire group in Kinanes for refreshments. Thanks everyone for enjoyable evening.

We have only 5 walks left this summer, so make the most of it.
Next Friday August 3rd 2018 we are heading to Durrow to complete the 2nd half of the fabulous leafy loop walk and also to view some scarecrows as part of the Scarecrow Festival 26th July – 6th August. Walkers can head to Durrow early to view scarecrows but one of the highlights is Pope Francis and the popemobile on the green. Meeting outside Castle Arms Hotel at 710pm sharp for walk.

The Friday Evening Walks are low level walks, from May to September of 2 – 3 hrs duration, mostly on forest track. If you want to get out and about in the countryside, meet new people, and make new friends, just come along. We explore paths and trails off the beaten track and away from the hustle and bustle of everyday. We offer an easy introduction to off-road walking for anybody considering taking it up.

All we ask is that you come prepared with sturdy footwear, rain jacket, drink and snack. Everyone welcome, old friends and plenty of room for newcomers. The walks are very sociable and usually we end our Friday evening walk by heading for a cup of tea and sandwich.

We meet every Friday evening at Slievenamon Road car park in Thurles at 6.20pm and leave at 6.30pm sharp.

Walks are organised by Carmel Needham, Tina Bourke and Brid Ryan Bourke.

If anybody is planning a walk during the summer and would be willing to invite club members, please let Dan know and he can circulate details.
